    $160 to $173 Canadian + shipping now, so almost twice the MSRP. Happy holidays!

    I went to a toy show over the weekend and vendors were selling it between $90 and $110. Not too bad, I suppose.

    Finally scored SS through trade, but sadly he has 2 left hands. If you have one with 2 rights het me up. Thanks. If anyone is curious I traded a 2013 TRU Grimlock for SS.

    I just received mine from Big Filipino (awesome seller btw) and he's almost perfect!

    I am trying to see if the front of the cock pit portion will eventually tab into the slot inside in bot mode, the finger articulation can be frigidity and it would have been nice to find a way to get a waste swivel going.

    However, he feels very solid with tight joints, nice paint apps and a lot of the loose parts that some customers complained about were not present in my mold.

    Love it!

    Decent trade for both sides. Both could be had at retail for about the same amount (depending on timing of Grimlock purchase). Glad it worked out for you!

    I wonder how all of these ebay sellers are going to handle the QC issues with these figures... are they going to accept returns? this stuff is out of stock so they may be stuck taking back inventory they can't return themselves...

    I doubt they need to worry. If they're selling it MISB then the only excuse to take it back is if the box is more damaged than described. Ebay sellers aren't really retailers. They're just that, sellers. If the seller is selling it opened on the other hand then as long as they describe the defects and photograph the figure and box well, then they're set.

    Yes. They're not responsible for faults in the toy :)

    I've been searching high and low for this figure (missed initial release in October because I was getting married/on honeymoon) -- anyone have one for sale?

    peaces is right and looks like there are a couple there currently less than $100 and plenty more than that under $150. not gonna say that thats easy to swallow compared to retail pricing but not quite as terrible as it will be in a couple months, especially if you're due a X-mas present for yourself : D

    judging by the posts here, this particular release was only obtained through sheer luck of catching the pre-orders that randomly went up only twice and/or spotting in store or the will and time spent haunting the TRU page and actual stores for local updates. had I missed this myself being such a huge Starscream fan, I wouldn't say no to a $100 price. check out ebay and the junkion posts and you may get lucky.

    best of luck regardless of whatever route you go man, hope you end up with one at a good price!

    Agreed. Sice this guy is bound to keep going up, if one decides not to buy it now, you better be certain that you will not want it later. Bcause it will only hurt more.
